#19 – Summer 2003

Tribute to the 20-Minute Poem

Conversations with
Robert Creeley & Gerald Stern


Releasing June 2003, issue #19 features 12 poems written in under 20 minutes–we timed them. As Stellasue Lee explains in the introduction, it’s startling and liberating to see what can come in such a short period of time.

Also in the issue, Alan Fox interviews Robert Creeley and Gerald Stern. In the essay section, Glenn McKee writes about poetic closure at the end of his life, and Terry Stevenson profiles Dana Gioia and west coast poetry.
